Hi everyone, I've got a burning question I'd like answered if possible.
I hear two totally different things about that first RN job out of nursing school
. One side says "Try and get on a med-surg floor. Do that for a year and you can do anything!" The other side says "Don't delay your ambitions. Floor nursing is terrible and you can be an ER/ICU/NICU/whatever nurse right out of school!"
The latter opinion is mostly people I meet in real life, and the former I read mostly on the internet, but there are exceptions. So far in clinical I have actually loved my med-surg experiences, but I realize that I am not working and things would be different.
What do you guys think? I'm in Florida, Tampa Bay area if it matters.
